So last Friday came and went soo quick. Mum had a lovely birthday and the cake, well tasted like cake!

Saturday was birthday party, picnic, birthday party, me and boyfie were shattered by the end of it but it was lovely to see everyone and eat yummy food and drink yummy vodka!

This week has been a bit of a weird 1, I've got lots of little jobs to do in the flat but they never seem to get done - except the constant washing, washing up, watering tomatoes cycle!

My tomatoes are soo tasty I'm really pleased and think I'll have some with my homous on toast later!

I've made some funky pieces this week I especially like my cool cubes necklace and as a trial thought I'd put a couple on ebay to test the water - you never know..........

This weekend has been interesting - my mum was diagnosed a celiac a few months ago and as it's her birthday this Friday I set myself the challenge/adventure of making her a birthday cake. Trying to find the ingredients took me into 2 health food shops and several supermarkets without much luck until today! My boss bird and I went to the big tesco for a bit of top up shopping and found the mystery ingredient xanthan gum powder!

Soo much creativity!

Last week went well, I had another sale and had some good making ideas which I put into practice and listed on Friday. I think that it's a good aim to list a couple of new things each week on a Friday. Huuummm.......

Sunday was lets have a play making a stained glass window day! And left is my final result! I was soo pleased - I cut - well most of it, designed and soldered together my reverse kingfisher bird!
Nancy from Artworks ran the day session and she is just lovely! If you live near Midhurst in West Sussex you should definately sign up to something creative - I will be trying my hand at other things! Watch this space!

This picture has been 60's styled LOL! But it shows quite well the green streaks in my hair and my rather crazy looking boyfriend!
I showed my friend yesterday have to make glass beads on my kitchen table. I haven't done it in a while so was pleased to get back into it, I think it's more for the winter - hot work!
Then today - as the gorgeous crystals arrived at the weekend I spent my lunchtime making hair grips for my cousin's wedding. I hope she likes them. I've sent her a picture. They are more difficult to do than they look - maybe it was the headpins fault!! x x x x
